Vinaka Buff

Vinaka is the merged tribe of Ikabula, Takali, and Vanua from Survivor: Millennials vs. Gen X. Their tribe color is black.

Vinaka was initially controlled by a supermajority which was formed against the Triforce alliance. However, the majority quickly fractured because of internal conflict, and in the end two rival coalitions were formed - one led by David Wright and the other led by Zeke Smith. Ultimately, David's alliance managed to get the upper hand and proceeded to eliminate the rival alliance.
